Honky-Tonk Night at the Museum September 7

We had some fun at “Honky-Tonk Night at the museum. Piano expert Jere DeBacker explained the workings of a player piano. Special thanks to 10th Mountain Distillery for providing a sampling of their brews. And lots of people learned they can play the piano (with their feet).

 

Honky-Tonk Night at the Museum September 7

The Eagle County Historical Museum gained a couple of notable artifacts over the past year: a 1911
player piano from the Nottingham family and a whiskey still from a homestead in West Vail.
Good time to have a party, right?

Welcome to “Honky-Tonk Night at the Museum” on Friday, Sept. 7, 5:30 – 8 p.m., at the history
museum in Eagle’s Chambers Park. The Eagle County Historical Society will be celebrating its new
possessions. Expect an interesting evening. Piano restoration expert Jere DeBacker will discuss the history and
workings of player pianos. Visitors will have an opportunity to “play” the piano like an expert … using their feet. Local pianist Linda Carr will also entertain with piano music and a sing-a-long of some old-fashioned tunes.

Refreshments, cash bar. Period clothing encouraged.
